In Search of Mockingbird
by Loretta Ellsworth

Originally published in 2007.
Audiobook narrated by Jessica Almasy.

Set in 1986, In Search of Mockingbird is a short, sweet young adult novel about a young girl's attempt to visit Harper Lee, author of her favorite novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Her bus ride to Monroeville, Alabama, becomes a journey to find herself.

It wasn't until after I listened to this book that I discovered that 2010 is the 50th anniversary of the publication of To Kill a Mockingbird. I plan to re-read the beloved classic later this year, but in the meantime, In Search of Mockingbird was a fitting tribute.
